Crown Chakra: Everything You Need to Know

Our bodies house our emotions. At a subtle level, our bodies constantly interact with the energies surrounding us, and certain impulses are related directly to the body part or Chakra that is weak or imbalanced.

The chakras represent a spiritual lesson or challenge geared towards deepening our understanding of ourselves and the universe. Thus, we are able to transcend obstacles, let go of emotional blocks, and move closer to spiritual awakening. Chakras, or the seven wheels of energy, is the force driving every person’s body, mind, and soul.  Here, we are sharing with you everything you need to know about the crown chakra, including how to align it so your energy flows freely and how to identify if it is blocked.

What Are Chakras?

Symbolized by the petals of the lotus flower, the seven chakras in the human body are the focal points of energy. Upon the complete opening of all these seven energy points, we can attain the universal balance of mind, body, and spirit.

Understanding each Chakra and the purpose it serves is crucial to balancing them and setting up the harmonious flow of energy. Chakras are interconnected; by balancing one Chakra, changes will be manifest at the others as well. The smooth spinning of these wheels keeps the upheaval, stress, anxiety, relationships, and your entire well-being stable.

Introduction to the Crown Chakra

Located at the top of your head, the Crown Chakra connects and opens our minds to the higher state of consciousness beyond our personal vision and preoccupations. The Crown chakra is a center of consciousness that connects us with the Universal. When it comes to the physical body, the Crown Chakra is the point from where the greater universe pours its energy abundantly into our body’s energy system. Therefore, if you are seeking your connection to the great universe, it is essential that your crown chakra is open and balanced.

Characteristics of the Crown Chakra

Body, mind, and spirit are nourished by energy flow in Crown Charka, and the energy is distributed through the physical body and down to the lower chakras. The more people who learn how to tap into this energy center, the greater potential exists for shifting our collective consciousness toward a more holistic understanding of the environment, health, disease, and the nature of humanity as a whole.

It is our purpose here on earth to discover the spirit within us and transcend all illusions. The more we recognize that we are responsible for what we create, the better we are able to act, think, and speak with love and wisdom in our lives. This center of enlightenment and awareness is a:

Life Energy

A symbol of pure prana (life energy), the Sahasrara focuses on mysticism. A person with the stagnant Sahasrara is unable to see the bigger picture, lacks motivation, and blames others for the crisis or stagnation. They also perceive life, death, and spirituality with skewed perceptions. In such uncertainty, the Crown Chakra reminds us that we are sometimes faced with a crossroads in our lives at which we need to let go of old phases in order to be reborn.


The seventh chakra influences all major body systems: the nervous system, the muscular system, and the skin. Thus, rashes, acne, eczema, and other skin-related problems may indicate that your Crown Chakra is out of balance.

Crown Chakra creates devotion, mystical connections, and prophetic thought on an emotional level. Do you have strange dreams lately? The Crown Chakra may be communicating with you.


The Crown Chakra helps us realize we are all in this together, and all our souls are here to learn what it feels like to be in the human body. People who have difficulty connecting with others and are intolerant tend to suffer from empathy issues on an overall scale. They tend to be solitary and are generally very judgmental of belief and spirituality.

Blocked Crown Chakra

The blockage of your crown chakra may make you feel a bit unsteady in your physical body. The following are some physical symptoms of a blocked seventh chakra:

  • Imbalance
  • Lack of overall coordination
  • Incapable of performing physical activities

Mental signs

Consider the world around you as you work with the crown chakra, drawing some attention away from yourself. Here are some questions to consider: How do I connect to the rest of the world? What can I do to grow as an individual? How do I stop feeling confused about my place in the world?

There are some mental signs that may appear when you have a blocked crown chakra, including:

  • A lack of connection to the world
  • Confusion
  • Poor mental functioning
  • Hyper spiritualization (too much meditation)
  • A lack of focus

Activating Your Blocked Crown Chakra

When you work with this energy center, you’re highlighting your interest in higher consciousness—trying to reach enlightenment? Practice activating your seventh Chakra. The crown chakra also represents super consciousness, a state in which you can no longer perceive yourself as separate. When your crown chakra aligns, you are more likely to let go of misperceptions about who you are and questions about existence.

Some of the most effective ways of tuning up your crown Chakra are:

  • Yoga Asana for Seventh Chakra
  • Pranayam
  • Crystals to balance the Crown Chakra
  • Aromatherapy

The human body is its temple, church, mosque, or synagogue, and we have all the power to activate the divine flow of energy through and in our bodies.  If you close your eyes, you will realize that the universe is you, and you are the universe. You are the divine’s infinite wisdom, and the divine is all around you.
